Welcome Back, Longhorns!

Lone Star Families,
Please read all the way through to the end of this newsletter. It contains an exciting piece of information just for you!

We can't wait to see your smiling faces at Meet the Teacher this week! Remember that if you will be walking your child to class on the first day, you will want to drop your license off so we can run your V-soft sticker while you walk around. Pick up your tag on the way out, and you will be able to skip the long line on Day 1!

Walking your children back:
Any/Every Day - All parents may walk to the Hug&Kiss zone in the foyer, and children will continue past the hallway doors on their own (We always have staff in the hallways to help!)
Day 1 (August 21) - All grades; parents must have visitor sticker
Days 1-3 (August 21, 22, 23) PK and Kdg; parents must check in at front desk and get visitor sticker
Days 1-5 (August 21, 22, 23, 24, 27) PK; parents must check in at front desk and get visitor sticker

Thank you! This helps us ensure that staff attention is focused on children and safe protocols are in practice.

Meet Your 4th Grade Homeroom Teacher: Mrs. Hopkins, room 303

I have a BA in Political Science and English from the University of Nebraska (GO BIG RED!) and a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Houston. I have been teaching since 2001. I have taught many different grade levels over my career.

This will be my fifth year teaching fourth grade and my fifth year in Montgomery ISD. I anticipate working together to ensure your child’s success.

I am blessed to have a wonderful family. My husband’s name is Mike and I have a son, Christopher and a daughter, Ava. Christopher is a freshman at Lake Creek High School and Ava is a sixth grader at Oak Hills Junior High.

Parents, please feel free to email a picture of your child and a few sentences about them to your child's teacher in response.
